I'm starting to fall for an ENTP, so I was hoping someone here could help me figure out how to really wake his interest, i.e. how do you convince someone who's always looking around for a better choice, that I'm the best choice? This particular ENTP would be a 30 year old gay guy. Any suggestions on things to say/do that would really make an impact on him? :happy:

Hm, seeing as all I know about him as that he's an ENTP, do and say things he would never expect, show off your intelligence, but don't drone on and on, be spontaneous, be fun, have a good sense of humor, and all that good stuff~

What Monte said.

Be fresh and challenging enough that he won't get bored. Be prepared to debate and whatnot, because for some reason we think that's fun.

Basically, put emphasis on both the intelligent and spontaneous sides of yourself and you'll do just fine. Other than that, just be straight to the point and upfront....ENTPs don't like it when people skirt around the issue. Just tell it like it is and don't try to play any games. That's all we ask.

Best of luck!

i think being straightforward is really really important. i think fj's tend to consider people's feelings to be paramount to the truth but if you're going to say or hide something to avoid hurting the entp's feelings, it's only going to back fire at you in the long run. if you start dating him etc, and you have any issues make sure you voice them because he's going to respect you a whole lot more even if he doesn't agree, than if you pretend to agree and then suddenly tell him otherwise down the track!

Wellllll... you can take yer average and just go with manwomanology.

If it's woman, show them a massive rectangular chest, if it's a man, show them a massive round chest transposed on a figure eight. It's all geometry, really. From about two fifths down from the head area, we fail to respond to reason, or anything else for that matter, with said criteria in place.

... so that's why I loved that subject in school...

Although by that logic, today's standards for biking shorts and shirts for men and women would indicate that we'd all have 90s in high school physics. Hrmm.

It also helps if you know what he is like, if you get to know him more - individually, regardless of his type. So far, I've been acting along these suggestions and the ENTP guy I had a thing for just wasn't interested.
We're buddies, though, and I think I prefer it that way. It's MUCH better now that I've gotten to know him because I'm not conscious of every little thing I do; I'm much more comfortable and free to act as I am - which gives me confidence, which is pretty attractive in itself. ;)

So, try to be comfortable, and don't mold yourself for his sake - you might end up regretting it later. Sure, suggestions on what ENTPs are attracted to could help, but not if in so doing them you're constructing an accommodated personality. I will say though, it definitely helps to be at least interesting, haha (if you happen to be that kind of person).

Godspeed, bro~

Don't sweat the small stuff, don't go on and on about people's feelings, or conversations and their implication with feelings. Think more about abstract science, plans, theories, exploration and adventure.

Be yourself entirely!

Seriously even if he doesn't like it all ENTPs respect people who are themselves 100% all the time. I know absolute assholes who I admire and respect because there always themselves and always honest. Sure you don't need to be an asshole infact its better if you not. But say what you think and say it straight. Do what you think you should do not what some one else thinks you should. Sure consider there view but If you disagree then do it your way.

That might not make the ENTP find you attractive but It will amke them find you interesting and get you some of their respect (no matter how begrudgingly it given) and other than that there ain't much you can do as If your not yourself the ENTP will find out!

Put a porno mag under a box that is propped up by a stick attached to string. Once said ENTP is inside the box, grabbing for the mag, pull the string to remove the stick from it's "prop" position. ENTP captured.

You may want to upgrade the magazine to a Blu-ray. "A porno in Blu-Ray? FUCK YEA! What idiot would leave a Blu-Ray porno under a huge box?" *goes and grabs Blu-Ray and watches the box fall on him* "Fuck, there's no TV or player in this box!"

*box is lifted to reveal a pretty girl*

"I don't suppose you have a Blu-Ray device so that I can watch this porno I found?"

It'd go just like that!

You, sir, are a romantic genius.

I really appreciate your imput, guys! I'll definately try to draw on the more crazy and intellectual sides of me, because they're definately there. I just usually don't unleash them until I know people really well. And I suppose the whole straight-forward thing can work quite well. The feeling of being accepted as you are and not having to play games really is one of the things i liked about him in the first place. And I guess it's rather comforting to know that I probably can take what he says at face value. :happy:

If you want to attract an ENTP, tell him you can explain how 4th dimensional forms exist and link that with 9/11 (some claim the planes didn't leave one scrap of metal, could they be 4d?).

Otherwise just buy him a physics book or something, straight up Ti.

Talk to your ENTP and keep an open mind and have a sense of humor. Simple. :)

I value an intelligent mind hidden behind a fun, energetic personality.

But remember this: No matter what, you're 100% expendable. That's how it is for me, at least.

I'm not sure an ENTP can be convinced that someone is right for them at all...I've had guys try to do this numerous times...but its either there or its not...if he's not choosing you, then there is a reason for it...unless you aren't being yourself around him...but you should never have to change your core self to appeal to another...you're setting yourself up for disaster..

Just have large breasts.


That's all my ENTP friend talks about concerning women he has yet to meet.


Shallow? Not my standard, but that's ok.


That's just what catches his eye.
